Diploma in the Rights of Children and Youth and their application in the field of education

23/11/2012: Mexico

On Sunday11 November, in Mexico, 18 teachers from most of the Marist institutions successfully completed the course  Diploma in the Rights of Children and Youth and their application in the field of education 2012, organised by the Marist NGO of Province of Mexico Central, with provincial support and the guarantee and collaboration of the Marist University « Campus Ciudad de México ».

The course comprised 120 hours of work (obligatory attendance and extra-mural) in order to attain two main objectives :

1. To become familiar with the basis and current state of human rights in  Mexico, in the light of the rights of children and young people, in order to reinforce the role of children and young people in the promotion and defence of their rights, especially in the educational domain.

2. To acquire the tools needed to implement a work plan with repercussions in the way of looking at the rights at the level of local educational processes (schools or milieus outside school).

We are grateful for the support received from the Marist directors, the  perseverance of the participants, and the help received from Clemencia Correaof the « Posgrado de Derechos Humanos de la Universidad Autónoma de la Ciudad de México », Annie Herrera, Gabriela Polo, Leticia Martínez and Mónica Hernández of the « Área de Educación de la Comisión de Derechos Humanos del Distrito Federal », Clara Meyra of the « Centro de Derechos Humanos Fray Francisco de Vitoria », Juan Martín Pérez, Alán Jiménez, Josué Sauri, Alma Meneses and Zaira Magaña, of the directive and technical team of the « Red por los Derechos de la Infancia en México », and lastly Sinú Romo of the « Colectivo de Educación para la Paz ».

This first step completed, the teachers are committed to returning to their   institutions and putting their project into application on the local level, during the school year 2013-2014. Our part is to accompany these projects in a punctual and efficient manner.

Through these initiatives we renew our commitment to « create, reinforce and draw profit from the institutional networks of promotion and defence of the rights of children and youth, to form ourselves and work in a co-responsible way in working for a humanistic education which promotes peace, social justice and solidarity. »
